You might have met this before. Indeed! Very annoying. This is due to unset of locale variable in Debian environment specifically for Perl applications.
Can't set locale; make sure $LC_* and $LANG are correct! perl: warning: Setting locale failed. perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings: LANGUAGE = (unset), LC_ALL = (unset), LC_CTYPE = "UTF-8", LANG = "en_US.UTF-8" are supported and installed on your system. perl: warning: Falling back to a fallback locale ("en_US.UTF-8"). locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory
To solve the above issue you need
- Generate locale (if needed). There is
locale-gentool under Debian.
- Set environment variables (via export).
- Reconfigure locales by
Here we go with step-by-step shell commands:
export LANGUAGE=en_US.UTF-8 export LANG=en_US.UTF-8 export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 locale-gen en_US.UTF-8 dpkg-reconfigure locales
